My name is Tanya and I was matched with a volunteer through ONW. I am very thankful for this new person in my life who allows me to experience Thunder Bay. Previously my world was much smaller as it was difficult for me to go out by myself.




My volunteer and I share many of the same interests and we have lots of fun together. We enjoy baking, cooking, attending musical events, visiting the art gallery, attending Improv theatre, and recently enjoyed going to Ray’s Animals and Reptiles. My world has expanded, and the new experiences are changing me and helping me to be a more confident person.
